Default Rumor: Texans interested in Matt Cassell Re-signs w/Vikings

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...gn=Twitter_atl


When Matt Cassel opted out of his deal with #Vikings, it made him a FA. The interest from his Pats connection Bill O’Brien & #Texans is real

I may be one of the few that puts some support behind this. There's no doubt the kid played well under Obie in NE as evidence by his inflated contract in KC after Brady came back. He can be a "stop gap" for us. Take Clowney 1.1, take Garrapolo (sp) 2.1 and pick up Cassel on the cheap for a 1-2 year deal until our rookie develops.

Can't miss plan right there! If Garrapolo isn't there, McCarron looks good too. Either way, a rookie to learn and develop until Obie sees that he is ready. I think with good coaching we could win 10-11 games with Cassel under center and a great supporting cast (which I would argue we already have).

I'm not really between those who want clowney here at all costs, I would be ok with them trading down to 1-4 and pick whichever is left between

I am all for this, I don't want to give up high draft picks with a trade or use a high pick on a QB. if we can get a ok QB in free agency and use the draft picks for Clowney, a OT, and a guard in that order, I will be a happy camper.

he opted out of 3.7 million, I am not sure if he is chasing more money or a chance to start in a program more fitted for him, I hope the latter.

Sounds like a plan to me.

Also an option that seems to have a lot of good things said about him is Brett Smith.

That would be a damn fine plan to me.

I cant wait for March 11, Free agency to begin. Who Texans pick up will help show the direction of draft.

O'Brien was the WR coach when Cassel was in New England.

Default Re: Rumor: Texans interested in Matt Cassell

I'm cool with Cassell if this is who O'Brien wants for 2014. In O'Brien I trust.

I do not see any of the QBs worth a 1.1 pick in this draft. And the problem is that O'Brien is married to the player if he goes with a QB. The pressure to make him an immediate starter will be immense, and O'Brien's head coaching career would be in a make or break situation based on the fortunes of one player. Minimum 2-3 year learning curve, and by then, if the Texans are not going to the playoffs, it could get ugly around H-town.

I'd rather see a dude like Clowney in this RC defense next to JJ. This gives O'Brien some room to maneuver in finding his QB.

I do not see much upside to drafting a QB this year, especially since none of them are obvious NFL material right now.

I would think Cassell would be lucky to get half what Schaub is paid this year. Drop Schaub and pick up Cassel, even if it's not a upgrade. Because there is very little chance of this move being a downgrade,

2011 he was the same as Schaub last year.
2010 he was significantly worse than Schaub last year.

We draft Bortles or Bridgewater, cut Schaub and possibly Yates and Keenum. And then B/B will be surrounded by guys who already know the system and can bring him up to speed more quickly.



B/B will be starting day 1.



Unless he absolutely suxors.

Thing is, I think McNair (and a lot of fans) are expecting a Kansas City-type turnaround, and may assume the best way to do that is with a more experienced QB.

I just can't see us starting a rookie QB next year.

Simply put, Schaub is damaged goods. He's done. Physically and mentally. But I'm sure he'd make a fine coach.

Yep. I have long said that a David Carr/Matt Schaub hybrid QB would be an absolute freak of nature like we've never seen before.
